Vince Ellwood

Vince Ellwood, RLA

Design Director

Vince provides design leadership to about 25 landscape architects in six offices. His thoughtful and authentic designs reflect relentless focus on client needs. He is constantly asking how he can be a better steward for our clients and it’s earned him a reputation for integrity.

Vince was among the first landscape architects to join HDR, back when Jimmy Carter was the U.S. president — long before technology took the stronghold it has today not only on design but on communications. Over the years, he has continued to propel our work as both a mentor to talented up-and-comers, and as a technology advocate.

Vince has held numerous leadership positions with local chapters of the American Society of Landscape Architects, and he has contributed to Landscape Architecture Magazine among other publications. He is a registered landscape architect (RLA) in Arizona, California and Texas.

These days, you’ll find Vince shaping some of our clients’ most exciting site development plans, contributing to both project development and master planning.
